You know all those new Pine Trail-based netbooks that were announced over the past few weeks? Yeah, they’re all starting to ship now. And you know what that means… videos of computer geeks early adopters taking computers out of boxes are flooding the web.
This weekend NDevil posted the first unboxing video I’ve seen of the new HP Mini 210. The laptop features your usual netbook specs, with a 1.66GHz Intel Atom N450 processor, 3 USB ports, a VGA output, and so forth. But HP has fiven the netbook a major visual refresh. There’s a new matte lid which is fingerprint resistant. And the entire bottom panel of the unit can easily be removed without a screwdriver, making it extraordinarily easy to upgrade the RAM, hard drive, or other components.
You can check out NDevil’s unboxing video plus a second video showing how to remove the base panel after the break.
We’ve also got an unboxing video of the Acer Aspire One 532h, courtesy of Netbook News.it. The video is in Italian, but there’s a universal language of unboxing videos. If you’re interested in seeing what the computer looks like and getting a look at anything else that comes in the box, you can watch these videos with the sound off.
In related news, Matt at Netbook Reviews wrote in to let me know that the Samsung N210 and N220 are now shipping in the UK.
Videos after the break.
